Trump Reelection Campaign Makes Almost $500k on Plastic Straws

The red plastic straws  have Trump's name printed  along the side of them. An ad for the straws states that  "Liberal paper straws don't work.  STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and  buy your pack of recyclable straws today." Trump Campaign manager  Brad Parscale says the straws  went on sale about ten days ago. He came up with the idea  after a paper straw that  came with a drink on a flight "broke." The straws sell in  packs of 10 for $15. The American Association for  the Advancement of Science  estimates that 8.3 billion plastic  straws have polluted the world's beaches. The National Park Service  estimates that Americans  use 500 million plastic  straws every single day.
